Early 1930s cut down Cossack Jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271934443374
This vintage jacket was made in the early 1930s, probably between about 1930 and 1934. This style, with the plain back, side panels with buckle adjusters, leather waistband and small patch pockets, was one of the first jacket styles to become popular following the invention of the separable bottomed zipper in 1930. The jacket has a buttoned throat latch / chinstrap, and while the zipper is a 1950s Conmar, replacing what would likely have been a double branded Hookless/Talon, the grommets from the original zip are still in place at the waistband.

Chest (pit to pit): 18″ (doubled = 36″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 15″
Length (base of collar to hem): 23-1/2″

This vintage jacket was made around 1910. It is made of white wool flannel, with a dramatic cutaway, unvented back, single button functional cuffs, mother of pearl buttons and a five button (3 functional) front. The shoulder seams are steeply back-slanted, the jacket is half-lined, and it has two steeply slanted internal breast pockets and an internal ticket pocket.

1928-1932 Hookless Talon money bag

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400943652431
This vintage deposit bag was made between 1928 and 1932 for the Elizabethtown Trust Company of Elizabethtown, PA. It is datable by its rare transitional Hookless zipper. These dual-branded zips were produced from ’28 to ’32 during a period where the Hookless Fastener Company of Meadville, PA had changed the name of their product from Hookless to Talon, but kept their company name on the slider. The company would change their name to Talon to match the name of their product in 1937. This is an early example of the transitional slider design, and has the full range of patents on the back, 3-20-17, 10-16-17, 11-25-19, 10-13-25, and 12-22-25.
